origin of kikko form
« on: Saturday, 21 July 2012 - 07:30:12 »

        I was curious see if anyone knew where the kikko form came from. I'm not referring to Eastern Asia, but more like which
   of the original astrophytum species had the genes first for the elongate aereole or pointed turbercle. My guess is myriostigma
   strongylogonum. I have some plants that have a high percentage of pointed tubercles. It's interesting. Any guesses or idea
   anyone? It's to late here right now to take pictures so i'll do that  tomorrow to show the plants.

i think it is a long selection of strongilogonum too.
 long way starting from a strongylogonum to abtain a good kikko. the strange fact  is that nudum kikko is far more common than the wthite form

we noticed also some kikko forms are produced from flower buds that turn into offsets from non-kikko plants.
do not know if these kind of offsets could be found also on field plants.

         Here are some photos of two different strongylogonum plants. I have seen at a friends greenhouse where I know there
      where no kikko genetics and a single kikko plant showed up on a myrio. nudum plant.
         Thanks also for moving this post. I didn't know I had put it in the wrong place until it was already posted.
